One character excels (super-seeds) others.

I'm looking for a scenario (typical to that of Shounen) where one character (usually the protagonist) excels unbelievably fast in something compared to his or her peers.

For example, 'Gon' from 'Hunter x Hunter' , 'Ichigo' from 'Bleach', 'Kurono' from 'Gantz', amongst others.

There's something about seeing a character 'power-up' before a fight, and seeing the impressions on the other character's faces of awe/fear that I really like, for example.

Ideally I'd prefer the other characters to admire, or be 'aware' from an early stage of the person's capabilities/talents as opposed to a case like 'Naruto' where the rest constantly underestimate him. That said, while frustrating, I do love the moments when a character proves his or her worth in a big way.

You can refer to the titles I've seen on my list here.

Thank you.

hmm... you've already got most of them I'd recommend on your list...

Angelic Layer I think works for what you're looking for.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll definitely have a look out for it.

I will also mention that the theme doesn't have to revolve around fighting, but anything. Think 'Yakitate Japan'..

Thanks again.

If you want to see people in awe of someone just go get any sports anime out there, some you might want to check out:

Hajime no Ippo
Initial D

But really just look for any sports anime.

I think Beck is a great example, its not fighting but it fits what you want, Hikaru no Go is another example

Strangely I haven't seen many sport-oritentated shows... I will look out for the ones suggested in the future, thank you.

I have actually seen both Air Gear and Beck. They're both very good recommendations, so thank you nonetheless.

Shadow Skill.. OMG shadow skill TV! watch that! Shadow Skill TV has like the best fight scenes i've seen.

Cooking Master Boy
Space Warship Yamamoto Yohko
Grander Musashi
Flame of Recca
Virtually any Gundam series
Wolf's Rain
Weiss Kruz
Shamanic Princess
Captain Tylor
The Hakkenden
Sakura Wars
Hell Sensei Nube/ Jiguko Sensei Nube
Slam Dunk
Prince of Tennis

hopefully something from that list might tickle your fancy. Some of those anime are licensed in the states though and some are really realy old. Also hope you might like shadow skill Tv. I love that series to heart.

whew that was a long list

Wow, it certainly is a long list!

Thanks tritoch for taking the time to selectively choose these titles. I've seen X TV, Gundam Seed/Destiny, Wolf's Rain and Berserk, but I have yet to see the rest, so thank you.

I purchase most of my Anime these days so I should be able to find them when I next go to Akihabara.

Edit: I will definitely look out for Shadow Skill.
